No it's not true. You can do this yourself if you have the tools and the basic know how. The tools aren't sophisticated either. If this isn't your cup of tea, you can see if there's an a/c shop around that can do it. Be forewarned though, a/c work can be expensive.

For instance I had a 1997 S-10's a/c repaired once....they had to replace everything short of the evaporator and condenser, that ran me $900. Which is why my next project I'm doing myself. Also your truck came with R-12 refrigerant which is no longer made and is expensive to buy plus you have to have a handlers license to have it. R-134a is an alternative and your truck can be converted, it just won't blow as cold as what the R-12 did.

Any time you go to a smaller pipe you can expect some torque gains, whether it be smaller tube headers or smaller tube exhaust pipes, and Flowmasters with their slow flowing capability, are great for low powered engines that you want to make sound good while adding a little pep of grunt.
